One of the hardest things about posting is coming up with a title. One can always pick some random title like "things I did today" or something like that, but it's just not witty enough. So I decided to pick a Japanese title (and will probably do so more frequently in the future). Nothing special. This title reads : doku-sho (symbolically broken down).
A week ago I felt I should wean myself away from the screen and started reading. I went to McDermott Library (which is lame - try searching for spectrophotometry.. one book? from 1987? seriously?) to pick out some books. Here's what I got:
(Presented in reading order). Saving the best for last, eh? Yes. I've only read two out of the four. The second one was awesome, although I got bored of the tankas really quickly and just read all the short stories. What great imagery and themes in 2-3 page stories!
Typically they introduce something obscure like a variety of flower and I say to myself - wtf does this have to do with Hiroshima? At the end, they tie it back into the main theme and its like ZOMGZYEAUZ.
I fall for this trick every time.
In any case, weaning. Yes. It seems every time I turn on my computer, my jdrama folder calls to me, so I settled for real-life jdrama? Man, I'm lame.
I'm certainly looking forward to fall semester. Now that I know I can take some online classes at Midland College, I think I'll take a psychology course and a creative writing course, bringing my total fall hours to something like.. 27.
Enjoy these funnies:
IAANNNNN!! (watch it first..)
